Great, now I'm going to get smirks and giggles from the cashiers at the grocery store.

You see I'm a watermelon man. I'm one of those guys that can eat a whole watermelon, all by himself.

Or, if they're on sale or if we are in the middle of a heat wave, I've been known to buy two or three at a time.

Hey, let me get this straight, I've been buying them because I like that sweet, refreshing taste.

Now because of this discovery (Watermelon Has Viagra-Like Effect, Say Scientist"), every old guy with a watermelon in his buggy is going to get ridiculed. 

I can just hear that arrogant 17 year old bag boy now: "Hey Mr. Loman, what's up?" "Do you need some help, today?"

Now wait a minute. This does explain a few things.

My wife is always saying, "Aw come on Willy, buy two, you know how much you like them. It'll be a treat for you."

Hell, last winter she had me driving all over the city to find imported watermelons. She bought two at $35.00 a pop.

Damn it, I am a watermelon man.

That is the number of Syrian refuges that the Harper government has brought into Canada.

From the Globe and Mail:
However, the government is facing criticism because 2,374 Syrian refugees have so far been settled. Of that number, only 622 - or 26 percent - were assisted by the government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …
